Crystal IS introduces global partner distribution channel offering Optan UVC LEDs

Crystal IS Inc of Green Island, NY, USA, an Asahi Kasei company that makes proprietary ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVC LEDs) grown pseudomorphically (strained) on aluminum nitride (AlN) substrates, has introduced the Optan distribution channel. The first five distribution partners will carry select bins of Optan UVC LEDs for specific geographic locales. These partners and corresponding geographic regions are: Asahi Kasei Microdevices (AKM) and Opto Science in Asia Pacific (APAC); Epigap Optronic GmbH and Pacer International for Europe; and Thorlabs for North America.

Crystal IS says that Optan allows developers to fully exploit the power of UV-based technology to improve productivity, increase accuracy and create greater flexibility in product designs. The light output and spectral quality - enabled by the unique, low-defect AIN substrate - delivers what is claimed to be best-in-class reliability, and longer lifetimes, for life sciences and analytical instrumentation (including environmental monitoring).

"In addition to delivery, we wanted to be sure Crystal IS distributors offered a full complement of services to customers needing to select a light source for their instrumentation needs," says CEO Larry Felton. "To that end, our partner selection process carefully reviewed capabilities in consultation and services in optical systems."

Distribution partners will offer Optan to those looking for light sources for different instrumentation applications including:

  • HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) for purification of proteins and pharmaceutical manufacturing;
  • real-time monitoring applications for water quality in drinking water and industrial wastewater; and
  • ozone monitoring for detection of harmful pollutants.

The Optan LEDs are currently available in peak wavelengths from 250nm to 280nm and power bins from 0.5mW to 2mW, suitable for spectroscopic applications because of their high spectral quality and reliability, says Crystal IS.
